2016 Trail Run Series



2016 Marmot Trail Run Series

Thursdays in May (5, 12, 19, 26) • 6:15 pm • Castlewood State Park (Ballwin, Mo.)

Alpine Shop and Marmot invite you to turn four typical Thursday nights this May into True Adventure! The 2016 Marmot Trail Run Series begins May 5, and we’re running out of series registrations. Castlewood State Park mandates that we have no more than 250 runners on the course, and we’re rapidly approaching that total. Register today to guarantee yourself a spot!

Featuring four different courses (a new one each week), we’ll cover distances of anywhere from 3.5 miles to 4+ over terrain as varied as hills, meadows, stairs and even creek crossings. And after it all, we’ll treat you to complimentary food along with beverages from Schlafly.

Trail Run Series RegistrantsThe first 250 Series Registrants are guaranteed to receive a Marmot Short Sleeve Race Tee ($30 value) with a custom Trail Run Series logo as part of your registration. Due to regulations from the Missouri State Park System, we are required to cap registrations at a total of 250 runners per race. While walk-up registrations may be available the night of the run, we do encourage all runners to pre-register on-line.

Prizes (provided by Marmot and Alpine Shop) will be awarded in both the men’s and women’s division in all major age groups.

Registration for all four races is just $70 through Tuesday, March 15. After that, prices will go up.
